|Details: Penrhiw Farm is an upland farm , extending to 70 hectares situated on
the eastern side of the Taff Bargoed valley in the county borough of
Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales.
The farm has been owned by the Thomas family for at least four
generations, and the farmhouse is of the traditional Welsh long house
type with a stone barn attached.
A flock of purebred South Wales mountain sheep, known localley as
Nelsons, was established fifty years ago. These ewes are renowned for
their hardiness and tremendous natural mothering instincts and produce
lambs of excellent flavour. A proportion of the flock are crossed with
Suffolk and Charolais rams to produce early lambs for the market.
The herd of suckler cows is bred with our pedigree Aberdeen Angus bull.
The calves are born in the spring and suckle their mothers for nine
months. They spend the cold and wet winter months indoors and are then
turned out onto fresh grass in the spring. The cattle thrive on our
upland pastures and readily produce good quality beef.
The farm is mainly permanent grassland , together with a small area of
forage crops which are grown to support the livestock. Penrhiw Farm
achieved organic status in March 2001.
